Top 5 Most Romantic Wedding Proposals!

Today’s guest post is by By Aurelie of Lady Likeable.

If you’re planning to propose, you want it to be as memorable and impressive as possible. You also want a positive response. In many ways, your proposal sets the tone for the rest of your life together. Here are some ways to make sure your proposal stands out as an event both you and your bride-to-be will always remember.

1) The Surprise Proposal

A proposal that comes out of nowhere can be very fetching. Consider whispering the big question in her ear during a church service, business meeting, or opera performance. This approach has the advantage of being so unexpected that you are sure to get her attention. It also allows you to enjoy her reaction!

2) The Big Event

Link your proposal with an exciting holiday celebration to increase the impact. But avoid Valentine’s day unless you want to be like everyone else.

Propose on New Year’s Eve when the countdown reaches 10. This works well at a party with lots of positive energy. By the time she realizes you’ve proposed, it will be a new year. If she say’s “yes,” it will also be a new beginning.

You can propose on 4th of July during the fireworks finale. Offering the engagement ring at the same time will generate some fireworks of your own.

3) The Romantic Weekend Getaway Proposal

Although it’s not original, the romantic weekend getaway is a perfect time to ask the big question. It’s also a winning and time-tested proposal strategy. But if you can’t get away, you can still make sure the proposal spot is remarkable and charming in as many ways as possible.

Whether it’s aboard a gondola in Venice, at a charming little restaurant in Paris, on an evening sail under the stars, during a horse-drawn carriage ride, or floating in a hot air balloon doesn’t matter. All that counts is that it’s far removed from everyday life and has an element of magic about it.

4) The Serenade Proposal

There are many ways to propose with a serenade. If you can sing and play an instrument, propose to her in a song. If you can’t sing, write a proposal rhyme and rap it to her.

You can also hire a singer at a small club or piano bar to perform the serenade proposal for you. A singing proposal telegram delivered to her office is another option if she appreciates flashy displays and loves attention.

5) The T-Shirt Proposal

Buy a personalized t-shirt (or baseball cap) that says “Will you marry me?” Pick her up for your next date wearing the t-shirt or baseball cap, but don’t draw attention to your clothing.  Just act normally and see what happens next.

You can do a quickie version of this with any plain t-shirt simply by writing your proposal on the t-shirt with colored marker pens.

Good luck!!!!!

Wedding Proposal Gone Bad!

Ok, remember how I posted on what a great place the Brooklyn Bridge is for a proposal??

Imagine you’re on the pedestrian walkway of the Brooklyn Bridge and your boyfriend is just about to propose.

He opens the ring box and suddenly the engagement ring falls out and drops through the wood planks down below.

You gasp! Everyone screams!

He climbs down into oncoming traffic to get the ring and miraculously finds it!

Wow! Talk about a happy ending….

Mile High Proposal!

Since a few of you aren’t officially engaged yet (love your pro-active planning and blogging!), I thought I’d share a fun new destination PROPOSAL idea! I think this is a really cool way to pop the question, assuming neither of you is afraid of heights. Talk about a travel themed proposal!?!

Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos, Mexico, the destination’s only Five Diamond property, is where it all starts. This Rosewood Resort has a dedicated Department of Romance to handle all of the details so the proposer can relax. Here’s what happens:

– The couple is chauffered to nearby Cabo San Lucas Airport

– Their butler greets them with a heart-shaped picnic basket full of champagne and gourmet treats

– They proceed on an exciting helicopter ride over the Sea of Cortez and Los Cabos

– About 30 minutes into the flight, the girl spots a message written in seashells and flower petals in the sand that reads, “Marry Me (her name here)!”

– The guy pulls out a ring and hopefully she says “Yes.”

Afterwards, they can celebrate back at the resort in their romantically decorated suite.

Tis the season for proposals!

How cute would this little Eiffel Tower be for a secret proposal? It would also be an adorable wedding favor for a French themed wedding.
